The Alaskan Brewing Co. (in Juneau, Alaska) is going green, but instead of looking to solar and wind energy, it has turned to a very familiar source: beer.
The Juneau-based beer maker has installed a unique boiler system in order to cut its fuel costs. It purchased a $1.8 million furnace that burns the company’s spent grain — the waste accumulated from the brewing process — into steam which powers the majority of the brewery’s operations.
Company officials now joke they are now serving “beer-powered beer.”
What to do with spent grain was seemingly solved decades ago by breweries operating in the Lower 48. Most send the used grain, a good source of protein, to nearby farms and ranches to be used as animal feed. More Alaskan Brewing Goes Green
Yep, it’s true. We all owe our thanks to wonderfully delicious beer. Check out this killer documentary How Beer Saved The World:
This is such a cool twist on popular human history. As an avid beer drinker, this is the history I choose to believe.
Be sure to pass this one along and share the knowledge!
FUCKING AWESOME IS ALL I GOTTA SAY:
*Instead of pouring that beer in like a monkey, be sure to tilt the beer and pumpkin so your whole shit doesn’t go flat immediately.
*Better get yourself a bigass pumpkin. Unless you’re planning on handing one of these to each guest, which is what would have to happen with my friends. Who shares a six-pack?
*Matter of fact, just fill the shit with Vodka, Sprite, and champagne. Then drop a little brick of dry ice in it once you’re about to start serving. Chicks will dig it. Booyow!

You can always open a beer with a lighter, like you’ve been doing since the 90′s, but don’t you think it’s time to step up your game a bit? Here’s how:
Here’s a free idea that’s worth a fortune: Invent a pocket chainsaw beer opener. I’m not sure whether a standard gas motor would be best or not, but I’m just the idea guy. Your job is to work out the kinks and make shit happen. Then it’s up to your marketing guy to make people think that they cannot live without this new pocket chainsaw beer opener. Pretty soon, you’re business will be as popular as flip-flop beer openers or belt-buckle openers. Only difference? Your shit will be way cooler.
If I could drink like this:
OMG Beer Bomb.
It’s Friday. Now you have something to do after work today. Don’t puss out, dude.
